VideogameUK Review: Bioshock 2 (PC)

From the review:

"It's difficult not to compare the two games and this became apparent as early as the start of the game. Unlike the first game, there's no dramatic opening as depicted by poor plane crash survivor Jack becoming stranded in Rapture. Instead you play a Big Daddy who is cruelly separated from his Little Sister, Eleanor. It's an intriguing story but one that's a slow burner rather than one that immediately hooks the player. There are no hugely surprising plot twists but there are some nicely placed set pieces and unveilings which make for some great moments scattered throughout the game. However I found that it wasn't really until the second playthrough that I found the story as compelling as the one offered in the original. With hindsight of what was to come, the poignancy of the story really came alight. It's also worth noting that the final third of the game is vastly superior to the rest of the game so while the game takes a while to get going, it is well worth persevering." (BioShock 2, PC) 8/10
